Jian-Ping Wang, a materials physicist from the University of Minnesota in Twin Cities, and his colleagues have produced a material that is 18% more magnetic than the most magnetic material known to this day. They have been able to produce a combination of eight parts iron, one part nitrogen. The resulted material has the formula Fe16N2 and its extremely high magnetism lies in its complicated crystalline structure.
This is another free energy device using magnets taken from PESWiki.com. The inventor is George Delk, who allegedly runs this device for three years now.
Many have tried to build magnetic motors, but it’s difficult, and the difficulty comes from the fact that you somehow have to isolate and beam the magnetic field into only one direction. Here is another experimenter that uses rotating magnets on the stator, that if aligned properly to a certain pattern that he tries to find every time the motor starts.
Researchers from the Fraunhofer Institute for Machine Tools and Forming Technology IWU in Chemnitz, Germany, are working on a project that will change the way automobile manufacturers and steel industry make holes in the metal they are processing.
Engineers at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory at the Florida State University are closer than ever to launching a new generation of high-field magnet, being 3,000 times stronger than an ordinary refrigerator magnet and will be able to generate a field about 45% more powerful than the strongest superconducting magnet currently available.
A guy named Mylow has tried to, and seemingly succeeded to build a magnetic motor whose power was self-sufficient to run it. The invention was not his, but Howard Johnson’s, who, in the 80’s, tried the same experiment and at that time it’s said it was a success. Anyway, nobody seems to have publicly replicated the magnetic motor until Mylow.
US Researchers from the University of Miami and Japanese researchers from the Universities of Tokyo and Tohoku invented a new type of battery that could revolutionize the way we think of a battery in all the aspects, from their charging speed to their capacity and discharging power.
As an addition to yesterday’s passive, solar powered air conditioning article, I found out today that NIST researchers (in collaboration with Chinese scientists) have a strong word to say in refrigeration technology that could revolutionize the inside components and operating cycle of that electricity guzzling, big, old fridge of yours. Well, ok, it may not be as old as I said, but the idea behind it surely is.
What you are going to see in this video is nothing you don’t know. In fact, I urge any weird-science reader to try and make the device from the video below, respecting the pictured details. I’ll make it myself from a hard drive plate and a used scotch tape support. Let’s see how much time it works, and if it can be improved.
San Jose’s West Coast Green conference from last week had a point of attraction: the world’s first fuel-less car, made by Magnetic Air Car. They even say it will be produced beginning with 2010.
